Mauricio Veloso Estuardo

Winemaker Maurico Veloso Estuardo is very much like Samuel L. Jackson’s character in the Avengers films, not in that he wears a very fetching eye patch, but that he hunts out heroes. In Maurico’s case, he searches across his native Chile for ancient (and heroic) plots of vines; some of them over 200 years old, offering spectacularly intense grapes, that produce wonderfully concentrated wines. This bottle is 100% Carignan from Colchagua.

Earthy and rustic yet with a rich fruit profile of red plums, cherries and bramble, supported by bright acidity and a full, velvety mouthfeel, this wine is highly complex but also just plain delicious.
